It was March 18, 2019. At the U.S. military’s busy Combined Air Operations Center at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, uniformed personnel watching the live drone footage looked on in horrific disbelief, according to one officer who was there.
“Who dropped that?” a confused analyst typed on a secure chat system being used by those monitoring the drone, two people who reviewed the chat log recalled. Another responded, “We just dropped it on 50 women and children.”
Without warning, an American F-15E attack jet streaked across the drone’s high-definition field of vision and dropped a 500-pound bomb on the crowd, swallowing it in a shuddering blast. As the smoke cleared, a few people stumbled away in search of cover. Then a jet tracking them dropped one 2,000-pound bomb, then another, killing most of the survivors.
So what is the point? War is shitty. It doesn’t do anything but line the government’s pockets. Mistakes happen constantly.
THE GOP WILL CAMPAIGN IN 2022 ON BIDEN’s AFGHANISTAN “MISTAKES.” President Biden immediately admitted and regretted what happened. But yes, Republicans will very conveniently skip over this deadly disaster which is much worse because in typical Trump fashion, it was covered up for THREE YEARS. The Trump-GOP is the Mafia branch of our corrupt government. Arrest and imprison them all. Move America forward.
The Trump Administration dropped a 500 pound bomb on women and children. Then they covered up their deadly mistake for 3 years.
